Fascia board caps the ends of rafters on the outside of buildings, and is oftentimes used to support gutters. They come from the roof edge and go down about six inches to meet the soffit, which is also called an eave. Soffits run from the bottom of the fascia to the top piece of wall material.
These two items can provide property owners with many important benefits, including:
- Improved structural soundness and lifespan, by repelling all outside enemies to your beams and roofing including weather and insects
- Improved attic ventilation, which helps properly regulate inside heating and cooling systems — which helps reduce your energy costs
- Improved architectural beauty from a neat, often colorful roofline “skirt”
- Increased property value, due to all the points above
Some early warning signs that your soffits or fascias need repair are: leaking gutters, rotting or sagging wood or roof ends, and damp patches appearing on your interior walls. The longer you wait to call us in for repair, the greater your risk of attracting a host of unpleasant — and more expensive — problems such as woodworms, dry rot, and even maggots.
Princeton Gutters also offers you an optional recessed lighting solution to help brighten entryways and side paths while further increasing the beauty of your building’s exterior. Because the low-wattage bulbs point down, they will not ruin the impression of a starry evening sky or light up the neighborhood. (And they act as a nice deterrent to any potential nighttime trespassers.)
We can repair or replace your soffits and fascia as a standalone job, or as part of a larger gutter project. When you ask for a free estimate, we always take a look at the condition of your soffits and fascia.
